Remy Shand[1] (born 1978) is a Canadian R&B/soul singer, who released his debut album, The Way I Feel, on Motown Records in 2002.

Shand was born to parents Jeremy Shand and Ana Olsson. His father was of English descent and his mother was of Swedish descent.[2] Primarily home-schooled in Winnipeg, Shand began raiding his parents record collection at an early age -- soaking up a wide range of jazz, soul, and R&B, with Marvin Gaye's classic Here, My Dear having a profound influence on his musical direction. Dropping out of high school to study and pursue music full-time, Shand played as a session musician and was a member of various experimental groups until he decided to focus a solo career.

In 1998, he began to write and record the songs that would later become The Way I Feel. Three years later he was signed to Motown Records.[3] "The Way I Feel" was released on March 12, 2002, and won a Juno Award for Best R&B/Soul Recording in the 2003 Juno Awards. Other than being successful in Canada, he managed to sell roughly 500,000 albums in the U.S. Shand received four Grammy nominations for his work.[4]
